'City Reads for CityWrights' Event Set for Key Biscayne Community Center, 4/4
The Key Biscayne Community Center, the Key Biscayne Community Foundation and City Theatre will present a free City Reads for CityWrights event on Friday, April 4 from 7- 9 p.m. at the Key Biscayne Community Center.
City Reads for CityWrights are fun and informal evenings of new play readings, presented by City Theatre and its acting company, that give audiences a first-hand role in the process that scripts go from page to stage. Audiences serve as critic and supporter, or even as an actor, while having a peek at what makes City Theatre a center for fresh, new works.
These evenings are an entertaining way for audiences to help City Theatre find great plays among the hundreds of submissions that the company receives for its annual Summer Shorts Festival. Summer Shorts is America's Short Play Festival that will take place from June 12 - July 6, 2014 at The Adrienne Arsht Center for the Performing Arts of Miami-Dade County, with an incredible line-up of scripts penned by the country's best writers including City Theatre National Short Play Competition winners.
